Finding Rest | Psalm 62:1-2
Psalm 62:1-2 Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Spiritually exhausted? Feel like you are chasing your tail? Busy, running hard, but getting nowhere fast? Could it be that you're spent from running hard after the wrong thing? Could it be that you are pretty much living your life for yourself? Could it be that your spiritual exhaustion is caused by the inward battle between your will and what God wills for you?
Today's passage explains where your weary soul can find rest. That escape from chasing your tail is found in God alone. In him, your eternity is set. He is the author and finisher of salvation. In him, you are secure. He is the rock! In him, you are safe. He is an impenetrable fortress. Peace is found when we surrender our weary soul to him.
A person just sent me this quote: "Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of running out of time." The best way to conquer this fear is to rest in the eternal one who transcends all time.
Heavenly Father, I am tired of running. I am tired of fearing that I will run out of time. Help me find my rest, peace and calmness in you. Help me find security in the rock and safety in the fortress so that I will not be shaken. In Jesus' name. Amen.
